Subbing bananas for butter in a cake?

curioussheridan | May 7, 2013 06:38 PM

I've been given a Williams Sonoma chocolate cake mix, that wants me to add 12 oz of butter. This seems excessive, and will kill my diet. I want to substitute banana for half the fat, but cannot find a reputable source that OK's it (Livestrong is the main source).

What do you think? Will it dry it out, or will it be OK? Anyone done this?
